Hope yall Enjoy!Smile

Supplies i used for setting up my new Androctonus .A vivarium.

2.5 gallon tank divided in the middle.

letting the sand harden up for burrowing.

Setting up the cage with love Smile


The darker substrate is this, works well for most of my scorpions.


The reason why i have the empty spot is because one of the lil guys i got
did not make it.
finished!



Let me know guys if i put a little to much in the cage, what i can do to make
it better.? and for lighting im using a 75 W night glo by exo terra thats it.

Swap the night glow for an infra red bulb. The night glow bulbs make them glow like a blacklight. That means they can see the light and it'll disturb their nocturnal activities. Other than that, maybe put a bit more substrate in there.

Is the divider secured?

What did you use the sponges for?

+1 to everything Street said.

Personally, I wouldn't use calci sand for a scorpion, it's usually just coloured calcium carbonate and not really sand. I prefer normal playsand or "desert sand" from the pet shop, as they're IMO a more natural product.
I doubt the scorpion will digest the sand though, so probably even the calci sand won't be an issue.

No there is a small gap between the glass [] as soon as i put him in there he when straight to the other side. So i put some substrate to try and cover it up, that's why there's that little pile of dirt on the empty side.

Its actually floral foam. I was going to use to make them sort of a hide they could get into kind of like a tunnel but wasn't sure on how it could effect the lil guy cause of the chemicals used to make that stuff and such, So i just did not use it ill post a pic up of how it was gonna look.

I would do something with that gap, as they will find a way to get under it. Not sure if I would use foam in my cages either, you can get the same effect with cork hollows.

Good Luck,

Rob
